enedict Cumberbatch managed to utilise the wrangling skills he picked up filming Oscar contender Power of Dog to save a petrified family penned in a field by a herd of cows.

The actor, who spent two months living in Montana to get into the role of surly rancher Phil Burbank, was taking a beach break when he saw the opportunity to put his newly found cowboy skills to the test.

He told Graham Norton: “I came back from shooting the film in August and we were off to the beach.

“To get there we had to cross a field and in the field was a petrified family who just couldn’t move, they were frozen because of a herd of cows with calves.

“I thought, ‘I can do this,’ and I just sort of parted the waves of cattle. The family was like, ‘That was incredible. Hey, aren’t you Sherlock?’ It was very un-Sherlock activity!’”

The Oscar nominated actor also revealed director Jane Campion encouraged him to stay in character during breaks from filming.

He said: “She was very secure about all the things I was insecure about and said, ‘Do whatever you have to do to feel ownership of this very different lived experience.’

“So, I went off to Montana for two months to find out what it is like to live on a ranch and to experience all those things you see in the film. It was incredible and so far from anything I have ever done.”

It is Oscar-winning filmmaker Jane Campion’s first movie since 2009 and has been nominated for 11 Oscars including best actor for Cumberbatch and actress for co-star Kirsten Dunst.

In the psychological drama, Benedict plays a secretive and cruel rancher whose brother brings home his new wife and her son to the famiy’s 1920s Montana ranch.
